HDG: #Review- My Grocery List #game

My kids are obsessed with playing games. However, I have the worse time picking out ones that are age appropriate for them. I always end up getting one with too many pieces or one they don't understand how to play without me sitting right up under them! Then we run into the whole educational dilemma. I want to get something that actually teaches them a skill but most of those games cost WAY too much!

That's why I was super excited when I was asked by Family Review Network and Marina Games to review their latest game for kids ages 3-7, My Grocery List. Here's a little bit about the game:

 My Grocery List is a fun educational game for children ages 3 -7. Children will learning matching, shapes, and colors. Each child gets their own grocery list and grocery basket. The first child to fill their basket with all the groceries on the list, wins.

My Take: My kids LOVE this game. I have to say they have played it almost every day since we got it. It's so simple to play! After playing with me a few times they were able to basically play the game on their own with minimal help! Now the first time we played they didn't know all the food but now they know everything! We actually had a little incident where my son got angry and threw the pieces all over the room. One card was missing and I couldn't figure out which one it was in my frustration. My daughter looked through and said, "carrot gone"! After checking through the cards myself, I found out she was exactly right! I love that I can tell they are actually learning something. The "shopping carts" are all different colors and now my two year old son can tell you every color. They have even come up with creative ways to play the game. Check out a picture of one of their made up games: 

I think it was actually just a creative way to set up the cards which is usually the hardest part for them. I just thought it was cute!

Buy it: You can purchase this game for the VERY reasonable price of $7.99. Check the store locator to find a retailer near you! Be sure to keep up with the latest from Marina Games by following them on Twitter and Facebook!
